I’ve beforehand posted Right here’s A Draft Week-Lengthy Unit On Synthetic Intelligence I’m Utilizing To End The Yr – Assist Me Make It Higher that I’m utilizing in my IB Idea of Information lessons (by the way in which, in case you go there you’ll discover a hyperlink to an introductory exercise I’ve added to it, nevertheless it received’t be “stay” till after Tuesday – I wish to hold it below wraps till after college students truly do it. I’m involved if our district’s tech division learns about it, they’ll block a few of the hyperlinks).
Now, I’m beginning to consider if I ought to attempt an AI exercise with my Intermediate ELL U.S. Historical past college students.
They are going to be doing a venture figuring out their selections for key figures and occasions in U.S. Historical past.
Ordinarily, I’d then have them write a brief historic biography of one of many individuals they selected.
As a substitute, although, I ponder if they need to ask AI this immediate:
Write a 4 paragraph historic biography of _____________ that includes his/her household life, his/her principal accomplishments, his/her challenges and his/her legacy.
Then, after AI generates it, college students need to do two issues with it:
One, they need to put every paragraph in their very own “voice.”
Secondly, they need to truth verify every part within the paragraph to verify if it’s correct or not and doc their analysis. If it isn’t, they need to right it.
Right here’s a mannequin of the primary paragraph of an AI-generated bio of Abraham Lincoln, adopted by how I put it in a scholar’s voice after which documented my analysis:
Abraham Lincoln, born on February 12, 1809, in Hodgenville, Kentucky, had a profound affect on American historical past because the sixteenth President of the USA. Household performed a necessary function in Lincoln’s life. He married Mary Todd in 1842, and collectively that they had 4 sons. Tragically, solely one in every of their youngsters, Robert Todd Lincoln, survived into maturity. Lincoln was identified for his deep love and devotion to his household, offering them with help and care all through his life.
Abraham Lincoln was born on February 12, 1809, in Hodgenville, Kentucky. He had a huge impact on American historical past because the sixteenth President of the USA. Household was necessary to Lincoln. He married Mary Todd in 1842 and had 4 sons. Just one lived to change into an grownup. Household was crucial to Lincoln.
I confirmed his date and place of origin at
I confirmed details about his household at
What do you assume? Any concepts on how I make it extra rigorous?
I’m pondering that this lesson could be a primary step in them recognizing that they wish to use AI to boost their voice.
